On Sunday, December 25, 2022 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a sermon based on Isaiah 9:1-7. This message was part 6 of the “God with us” series. Below you will find questions related to the sermon for group discussion or personal reflection. You will also find audio and video of the message to listen to/watch, download, or share.
NOTE: The “God with us” Daily devotional book ends today … but the entire devotional is available for download at this link.
- Read Isaiah 9:1-7
- Make a list of everything you have done to celebrate Christmas this year? Anything new that you added this Christmas season? Anything missing?
- In Isaiah 9:1-3, we see God replace “gloom” with “glory.” What are some reasons for “gloom” in your world this year? What would it look like for God to trade those gloomy things for glory? If you KNEW God would replace your gloom with glory, what kind of celebration would you want to throw?
- In Jesus, God has done SO MUCH for us! And, when Jesus comes again, EVEN MORE blessing will flow in the direction of those who are trusting in Him. Because of these reasons, it is absolutely appropriate for us to celebrate Jesus and MAKE MUCH OF HIM this Christmas season and always. Make a Christmas list … this one a list of things that Jesus has done or will do for you. How does looking at THAT LIST inspire you to worship Him more this year?
- What is one particular application you took away from this passage/message?
